You know I love me the classic movies. I will pretty much watch any movie if it's in black and white and made before 1965. I especially love movies that were made in the 1930s and getting the chance to see them on an actual big screen instead of on a tv is a real treat. Every Saturday the International Museum of Art screens a classic film, but this weekend, I'm going to go see a movie that isn't in black and white, or made before 1965. I'm going to go see 'One Magic Christmas', a little known movie that was made in 1985.

The movie is about a family led by mom Ginny and dad Jack, who have fallen on hard financial times. Jack is unemployed, Ginny is embarrassed that she has had to go to work as a grocery store clerk, and their kids Cal and Abbie are feeling their parent's stress. Christmas is right around the corner and Santa, seeing how sad the family is, sends Gideon, a Christmas angel, to help Ginny find hope again.

I saw this movie once on tv a few years after it came out and I'm really glad I can see it again. It is sweet and sad and hopeful. And it will be a lot of fun to watch the mid-80s play out on the big screen again. You should see it. You'll be glad you did. IF you can't make it, you can always added to your come.

The movie is free and after the show, check out the Museum. It has a lot of interesting exhibits, and the architecture and furnishings are breathtaking. You can even enjoy the fantastically well-priced concessions. They have popcorn, soft drinks, and candy for a buck a piece so you can take someone with you and will probably only spend about $20 for the whole afternoon.
